Batth set for Wednesday return

Batth set for Wednesday return

Highly-rated Wolves defender Danny Batth is set for a return to Hillsborough on a loan deal next season, according to reports.

Batth spent the end of last season on loan with the Owls and impressed boss Gary Megson and Wednesdayites alike with his commanding performances in the heart of defence.

The 20-year-old is on Megson's list of players he'd like to bring to Hillsborough to bolster his squad for a promotion push from npower League 1 next season.

The fact that Wolves will still be in the Barclays Premier League next season has helped Wednesday's cause to sign Batth on loan greatly.

It means the youngster is still likely to be down the pecking order under Wolves boss Mick McCarthy and another loan spell to gain more first-team experience will suit all parties.

Batth enjoyed his loan stint at S6 last term and would team up with centre-back partner Rob Jones, who he spent the end of last season on loan with.

The deal could be on a season-long or half-season basis and his arrival would be a big boost for Wednesdayites.

Batth and Jones were immense together would be great to see them both back at the heart of our defence again!! For the first time in a few seasons I am actually optamistic about next season ( hope I'm not wrong)

If this is true it will be a great for the team, him and Jones were our best central pairing last season, and probably saved us from the drop.

If Jones and Batth re-unite their partnership at the back I'm hopeful of great things as they showed what was possible when you have a solid rear guard... with Weaver behind them given confidence by their play we'll be properly difficult to break down. Especially with the signings that have been made and are in the pipeline for the centre of midfield!! Soon the attention will shift from clean sheets to creative players but with a the possibility of the core we may have on the pitch these players will finally have license to show what they can do.

Well if you consider they both joined at a time when we were without our first and second choice keepers we did well to keep it as tight as we did and hopefully if this comes off the link of Batth, Jones and Weaver will work even better over time!

He helped CLEAN up our defence last year who had been a right SHOWER up until then. And we may be able to pull the PLUG on a few of the poorer buys we made.
